November to March is the best time to visit Langkawi, as this is when peninsular Malaysia receives the most sunshine. The weather during this period is relatively cold and pleasant. Although Langkawi falls into the tropical zone, it does not experience severe or unstable weather changes that Malaysia typically does. The reason behind it is that Langkawi is well-protected by the island of Sumatra on its west and the Malaysian mainland on its east. Due to its strategic location, the temperatures remain fairly consistent throughout the year, hovering between 25 degree to 34 degree Celsius. This region experiences two distinct seasons, namely the wet season from April to October and the dry season from November to March. February is considered as the hottest month of the year, while September to October is the wettest period. During monsoon, the rains last for only 2-3 hours and are usually followed by sunshine.
